Once Upon a Time Sampler - January

Welcome to my first Once Upon A Time Sampler post!
I'm going to update once a month once I've finished the block for that month.

This month we have Snow White and the Seven Dwarves!

Apologies for the absolute awfulness of these photos!

How cute!!! That's all to say really ^^; It was a really enjoyable stitch. I started off by stitching all of one colour, but I didn't feel like I was getting anywhere so I switched to stitching motifs and I flew along ^^

I very arrogantly proclaimed 'I will stitch all the border first!' ...but it's too much! I have decided that I will stitch the border as I go to break it up.

I am using the recommended threads (DMC and Weeks Dye Works), which has reconfirmed how much I love WDW's ^^

I am not using the recommended fabric, which was Dubloon by Picture This Plus. I would have had to order the fabric from America so I don't know if I would've got it in time for when the first chart was sent out and I wanted to be able to start stitching right away! So, after much deliberation I made a decision! I went for a Polstitches fabric :3

28 count opalescent linen in Heirloom *___*
It is the most beautiful fabric!
The crappy photo doesn't do it justice!

I wonder what next month will be?


  1. The first block is really sweet! I don't know this design at all, so I'm quite looking forward to see your progress :) Have a lovely weekend x

    1. Thanks :) It's really exciting to stitch as each month is a surprise :D

  2. That is really cute. I can't wait to see next month's progress. :)

  3. You're right, this is so cute! I hate stitching borders too, a little bit at a time is best.

  4. Great idea to stitch the borders as you go. The motifs are just too cute!
